It was announced late last night at Comic-Con 2014 that Firefly is coming back – as an online game. Better, the original cast will provide the voices of the crew of the Serenity – Nathan Fillion, Gina Torres, Adam Baldwin, Jewel Staite… and Alan Tudyk would be voicing several characters.
The game is currently in development, but you can see a trailer, If I Were a Captain, after the jump.
Adam Baldwin plays the second in command, Executive Officer (XO) Mike Slattery on Michael Bay’s new TNT series, The Last Ship (Sundays, 10/9C). Besides having a ton of genre cred (Day Break, Chuck, Firefly/Serenity), Baldwin brings a wealth of experience to the role from working with directors like Robert Redford and Stanley Kubrick.
When Baldwin took the time to speak with a group of journalists/bloggers recently, he proved to be a genial, intelligent and insightful interview. He is just as cool as you’d think he’d be.
Over five completely unexpected seasons – the show was always on the bubble – NBC’s little show that could, did! Chuck [Friday, 8/7C], wraps up its fifth and final season with a two-hour finale that will make you laugh, cry and laugh some more [before you cry some more]. If any other show wraps its run like this, it would be a crime. For Chuck to wrap this way is perfect.
Last night, your Eclipsemagazine roving Comic Con Reporter was at the NBC Network Party with bells on. Yes, real bells on a cute blue bracelet I bought on a shopping trip. The party was held at the Hard Rock hotel in the Gaslamp District. There was plenty of food, drinks and friendly people from NBC and other press outlets.
There was also a lot of stars from hit NBC shows like ‘Community’ and ‘Chuck’. And of course stars from the new NBC supernatural themed series, ‘Grimm’. Cody Deal, star of the SyFy Channel original movie ‘The Almighty Thor’, was also on hand to chat with everyone.
Everyone was super friendly and happy to talk to fans and press alike. Because I wasn’t able to take each and every reader of Eclipsemagazine with me to the party to meet and mingle with the actors, they were more than happy to take a moment to shout out a hello to all of you.
In part one of article, take a look at the shouts outs from Adam Baldwin, Yvette Nichole Brown and Cody Deal.
Tomorrow night NBC’s Chuck [9/8C] returns with two slam-bang episodes – before sliding into its regular timeslot Monday night [8/7C]. Now we get to see if all those Subway sandwiches we ate were worth it!
First up, Chuck vs. The Pink Slip deals with Chuck’s inability to access the Intersect 2.0 at will because he is inconsistent at keeping his emotions in check, resulting in his getting fired and slipping into a cheese ball hazed slacker stupor. The following ep, Chuck vs. The Three Words, brings back Carina [Mini Anden] who’s gotten herself engaged to arms dealer Karl [Vinnie Jones]. Monday brings us Chuck vs. The Angel of Death, in which Chuck saves the life of the dictator of a Cuba-like country who wants to bring democratic reform to his country. Plus more fun at the Buy More.
